BINOMIAL            TECHNOLOGY & SUSTAINABILITY

7 Lessons of Collaboration, Innovation & Leadership in Portugal and Europe

Welcome to the "Binomial Technology & Sustainability".

This book presents an innovative approach towards the dynamics between both topics, as well as their impact in the current world. 

From sustainable aircrafts and space satellites, to innovative tech engines from drones to artificial intelligence tools to fight the ocean crisis. From the machine that recreates the first moments of the Universe and the Big Bang explosion, to the production of energy on Earth in the same way Sun does it. From industry 4.0 to the digital revolution in agriculture.

“It is critical to abandon the separation of knowledge and domains that is still quite present in the

European education systems."

Francisco Veloso, Dean, Imperial College London Business School
